Basic "mare in heat" question
OK, so I know all about the birds and bees, but maybe not enough about horses.
I am new to the whole "mare in heat" thing and have a question about what she is doing.
She is 2 years and 8 months. I just got her about three weeks ago.
The stable I have her at has a stallion a few stalls over.
When I let her out to do some roaming, she will go right over to his stall, lift her tail and discharge a decent amount of fluid. It has been a few short bursts, and other times almost like she is peeing.
I figured she was in heat.
Two weeks later and she is still doing it. Or, maybe she took a break, and is doing it again, to be honest I'm not sure.
In any case she seems to be "in heat" very often, or for a long time, or ?????
Ready to feel stupid, but bring it on.
BTW, I am in Costa Rica and have not been able to get a clear answer using my not perfect spanish which is why I am turning to you guys.
